New Start Recovery’s drug and alcohol detox program is an excellent first step in recovering from chemical dependence before transitioning to a residential treatment program. When someone who is physically dependent on alcohol or drugs tries to stop using, withdrawal symptoms will begin and increase intensity before tapering off.
After a time spent abusing drugs or alcohol, the brain and body become accustomed to operating with a certain amount of the substance, physically activating cycles of tolerance and dependence. Using becomes less about the effect and more about keeping withdrawal symptoms at bay, which can be uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. Physical dependence compromises an individual’s ability to stop using voluntarily, and trying to quit alone can be potentially life-threatening. Addicts don’t necessarily continue their habit due to selfishness or lack of desire to achieve sobriety, but simply because quitting is not an option without the supervision necessary to make sobriety possible

What’s the Difference Between Your Services and Medical Detox?
Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced and managed safely with the support of a medical detox center. Medical detox takes place in a hospital setting, with medical staff on-site 24-hours a day, and is reserved for patients who are physically compromised and require constant monitoring for life-threatening conditions.
New Start’s detox program also has 24-hour supportive services, with 24-hour observation and support by a trained on-site detox team. For most patients, New Start Recovery’s drug and alcohol detox is just as safe as a medical detox facility. Suppose a potential client’s physical state raises red flags during New Start’s careful intake process. In that case, we recommend medical detox in a hospital setting before admission into our sub-acute detox center. We encourage you to contact us if you have questions regarding this process.
When a chemically dependent individual suddenly stops using, the brain and body can react with shakiness, dizziness, fever, nausea, or seizures. The progress made in addiction treatment begins with first addressing the physical withdrawal symptoms. In most cases, withdrawal symptoms will occur within 48 to 72 hours and can take roughly a week to stabilize. At New Start, assistance is available 24/7 and depending on the client’s medical, drug and alcohol history, counter-indicative medications may be prescribed to help diminish symptoms.
One of the common characteristics of addicts is the tendency to have not appropriately cared for overall health and well-being. Much of detox involves adjusting to life without addictive substances and re-learning self-care. Rest and proper nutrition are essential in the first few days. As strength and balance begin to return, the opportunity to identify and treat the sources of addictive behavior becomes possible.
